Cholesterol Health

According to the National Institutes of Health, it's important to remember that doctor-prescribed medication for high blood pressure can have serious side-effects and it is preferable to check cholesterol levels often and pursue dietary and lifestyle changes that have a multitude of other benefits, while also addressing potential cholesterol problems.

As is so often the case with these heavier medications, they address the symptoms and not the underlying condition. If you do feel the need to take medication, make sure to do your research, and also remember to supplement that medication with healthier lifestyle changes that get at the root of the problem.*
